Throwback to Europe

There’s something about traveling that makes me feel alive and at home. The destination doesn’t change the feeling, only what I learn. Seattle, Cambodia, Colorado, Europe, each place has taught me something. I love experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. I flew out to Europe this past summer to shoot one of my best friends wedding in Switzerland. (You can check that out here if you missed it). Since I was also going to be in part of the wedding I brought my buddy Trey Dillon with me to second shoot. I’ve been around the world with him and he’s a ripping photographer. After arriving in Munich we were greeted with hugs and a German family tradition, football. After countless hours of travel we weren’t much good but we still managed to win :)

We woke up the next day and decided to rent a Fiat 500 open air (meaning the roof goes down) and spend the next few days driving 1300 miles in a big circle across Europe. My favorite way to travel is the least planned option, show up somewhere with no plan other to have a really good time, meet some great people, and go.

We picked up the Fiat in Munich and headed straight for the Alpes, a few hours of countryside and then dinner in Austria in some of the most beautiful mountains i’ve seen. 6 hours later we were in Venice sleeping in the Fiat in a parking garage. We caught sunrise over the grand canal and then wondered our way to St. Marks Square where we watched the city wake up. We then head across Italy to Cinque Terre where we spent a few days on the Mediterranean coast. We drank cappuccinos and espresso for breakfast, watched the sunset while drinking wine cliff side, and ate pizza three times a day. From there we drove back up through the Alpes into Switzerland to meet up with my buddy and later shoot the wedding. So many rad memories to think back on, big thanks to Chris and Tamara for getting married so I could make this trip happen!

Jordan & Amanda ↟↟ Married. Tallahassee, FL

     Love like this is wildly beautiful. When family and close friends come together, bust their butts, throw high hives, hugs, tears and fist pumps amazing things happen.

Kelsey & Jared ↟↟ Engaged. East Texas

It’s shoots like these that leave me smiling for days afterward. These two have it. They love deeply. I could feel it from the first frame, the way he looks at her and the way she holds him. The ingredients were all there. They’re madly in love and they trusted me to document it.  Can’tContinue Reading
